is reporting that Pro Bowl offensive tackle Tyron Smith has signed an eight-year extension with the Dallas Cowboys through 2023 worth nearly $110 million.
Smith, who the Cowboys view as a cornerstone of their future, is guaranteed $40 million and will receive a $10 million signing bonus, according to sources. He had two years remaining on his previous contract after the Cowboys picked up the fifth-year option of his rookie deal in the spring.
Smith is the second member of the 2011 draft class to sign a lucrative extension in as many days, joining Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, who signed a five-year extension worth $70 million.
Smith has played every game but one since being selected in the first round of the 2011 draft.
